Make a Change's executive director Anne-Marie Edgar will work with host Jenna Raider and director Shane Hainsworth on a 10-year anniversary event on Oct. 8.

Shambhala Hall to host Make a Change celebration

The two-hour event will be held at the Shambhala Music & Performance Hall on the Selkirk College Tenth Street campus.

Following on the heels of the successful debut episode of The LineUp, Nelsonite Jenna Raider is hosting the upcoming 10-year anniversary for Make a Change at the Shambhala Hall on Oct. 8.

“The event will be an opportunity to highlight how the efforts of our organization and our community partners have impacted people’s lives over the last 10 years and will demonstrate what people can achieve through the support of caring individuals and organizations,” said Make a Change’s executive director Anne-Marie Edgar.

Raider said attendees are in for a treat.

“People can expect an event full of inspirational and triumphant stories, plus a wonderful and entertaining evening. There are a handful of success story films, an appearance by the Board of Directors, and a number of interviews with Make A Change Canada’s staff and clients.”

“I feel honoured to help ensure this celebration is a memorable one,” Raider said. “I wanted to get involved because I was impressed by Make A Change Canada’s mandate to provide employment and skills training to persons facing challenges to employment. This is such important work, and Make A Change Canada is truly living up to their name.”

As part of the event, members of the Kootenay Initiative Program (KIP) will appear on video. The Cranbrook-based group is set to open the doors of its new business called Reclaim Outlet this November. The group will refurbish construction goods such as sinks, doors, and cabinets before selling them to the public.

The KIP group will be joined by Patrick Jarvis of Ancient Hermit Drums and Joan Blood of Racing T-Quilts. Roslyn Mooy, author of the touching trilogy Carousel, Carousel The Missing Years, and Carousel The Relapse, and independent film producer Brent Running will also make an appearance. Running will be talking about his new film, Teacher’s Lessons.

The event will be held from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. and will be broadcasted nationally through Ustream. To follow and join the event visit bit.ly/fb-me-extravaganza.
